Welcome to the forum!

A spot of luck getting your car, you'll have it sooner than some of us who ordered yonks ago! I've sat in the Black Up and its a beauty, the white one will be better tho (I've ordered a High White up so I have to say that :D)

Lots and lots of piccys when you get your car :D

Hi Ian, welcome and Hello!
Sorry I've been online past few days but must have missed your post, two weeks is good, timed that one right walking into the dealers when you did

hooray !!!!! nice to feel welcomed. Yes, indeed, i didn,t even go to the dealership. I work in the motortrade and had had a quote from a friend of mine at Wayside Milton keynes. Just thought i,d compare with VW Northampton and ............... well, the guy was either very switched on or i was very lucky. Literally minutes before, the deal had been declined. The chassis number had already been allocated to the customer, so all they had to do was change the name to the chassis number rather than putting it back in the pond so to speak. They also did a better deal !!!, Spoke to the sales guy yesterday and it should be about ten days now.

well, 48 hours of ownership and so far so good. Getting my head round the mats and mates thingy !!. pretty cool watching the dials move around and optimising gear changing, very clever !!. My only gripe so far is, VW should supply a little bag to keep the screen save when your not using it. Apart from that, the car feels substantial, solid and very cool. The doors shut with a thump. So does the boot. Going to polish her at the weekend. Will try to put some pics up.
